After the most recent debacle in which Drew Brees bent the Vikings over and gave them a proctology exam without the use of hands… crude yes, but that’s actually the cleanest thing I could come up with to explain that GIANT Charlie Foxtrot of a game… I turned on my Playstation and began to punch rock my rage out. And since I don’t have any REAL skills at using an actual musical instrument I had to play Rock Band.
Anyways, as I was wailing through riffs and belting out lyrics to such classics as “Say It Ain’t So” with my avatar Lee D. Vocs, I thought about how great some of those songs were. And for some reason I thought about what my favorite music was and some music that helped me through my life when I was in a better or worse place than I am now.
Skol Girl has a thread that picks a song for different topics which is a pretty sweet idea. But I haven’t seen anything from anyone about what everyone’s favorites are. Maybe it’s a bit personal, but hey, what’s the harm in sharing some of your favorite band and singers with fellow DNers. It’s something light in this extremely oppressive season of disappointment.
So anyways, in order to get it started here’s some of mine. I couldn’t decide on just one so there are a few of each category, Favorite Band, Male singer, Female singer, Song.
Bands- Korn, Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Breaking Benjamin, Poison, and to a lesser extent Boston, REO, Journey, Heart.
Male Singers– Chris Cornell, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Benjamin Burnley (Breaking Benjamin), M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold), Lajon Witherspoon (Sevendust), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row)
Female Singers– Pink, Anastasia, Pat Benatar, Ann Wilson (Heart), Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf)
Songs– Every Rose has it’s Thorn (Poison), I Remember You (Skid Row), Heaven (Warrant), Gunslinger and So Far Away (Avenged Sevenfold), Your Guardian Angel (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus)
Figured this would be a way to deaden a little bit of the pain associated with this season. I'm real interested in seeing some of everyone's fav's.
Happy Holidays to everyone and hopefully you have a great New Years also!
